I am an introvert true and true. I am quiet and low-key, but the world won’t leave me alone. Most people that I encounter find me to be good-looking. I ain’t complaining, but people expect for me to be the life of the party or this interesting person based on my looks. I am considered boring to a lot of folks, but my looks draw people in. It’s hard for me to make friends and keep friendships, because I live in an extrovert world. People make me feel bad for being who I am. Introverts tend to like peaceful environments, go with the flow, we hold our emotions in. We are constant thinkers. Often the simpliest conversation I have with folks is rehearsed in my head first. I had a college professor ask me why i’m so quiet, like who does that???
My sister said do you want to stop being this way, that’s like saying do I want to stop being black. Being an introvert is who I am, I can’t turn it off! Baby I was born this way! Literally. my mom said I was a quiet child that liked to read books alone. I get excited by having my house alone and curling up to a good book even as an adult. Chatty people make me awfully nervous. People say that I am mean, but I kind of feel like I am protecting my highly sensitive self. Sure I can give a presentation in class or in school, but right after that I continue to be quiet old me. People cannot accept the fact that I am comfortable with being by myself, and in my own little world. Stop judging introverts as being cold and stuck up(I am a little stuck up) only because I can’t walk into a room looking withdrawn and afraid. I have to come off confident and in control. Anywho, Their is nothing wrong with being this way, Us Introverts Run the world *In Secret* of course.
